Spooky Lighthouse HDR Images


Link Posted 03/08/2008 - 17:07
Some images I took this weekend with the view to continuing the HDR theme started by John R.

It is an abandoned Port entrance Lighthouse in Edinburgh near the new Ocean Terminal development.

Comments most welcome.

Images taken with Pentax K10D and Sigma 10-20mm and 50mm Prime.

Excellent set of images, just the right sort of subject for the technique. A lesson in how to get it right!

Best regards, John

Any chance of seeing a non-HDR version of No. 2

Great shame that the building has fallen into disrepair - it would make an unusual home

Excellent shots. Overall very well done with the HDR.

I particually love the second shot. Very dramatic. Lovely.

Excellent series, Gary! And a very suitable subject as was pointed out already.
Bold processing but not too bold (at least for my taste), well done.

I really like the machinery shots. Numbers 5 and 7 are my favourites.

Excellent set of pictures, I particularly like number 3 - very moody and nice colours!

Very nice set of images. Reminds me of the scenery in STALKER.
